I have been reading an article on infertility from one online health magazine and I have noted that male infertility is as common as female infertility. The article revealed that about 15% of couples are infertile and statistics have shown that one third of infertility problems are due to female infertility and another one third are due to male infertility. The most common male infertility cases that were cited were due to low sperm count, poor sperm motility and varicocele; other cases of male infertility are caused by genetic problems and hormonal imbalance.
Yes, infertility is a major issue to having a child; however, treatments for male infertility are now available to address the medical condition that causes fertility problems. Some men undergo surgery to repair varicoceles, some go through a drug therapy program to help hormonal problems, while others use herbal male enhancement such as those with ginseng.
Although the internet is a rich source of information on infertility, it is still important to go to a medical specialist for proper diagnosis and to properly address the issue.
